mrchad9Horse Creek Pass  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 19, 2008


Up from Horse Creek Pass the first day of an overnight with Whorl. One of my favorite weekends in the Sierra. Camped at the lake south of the pass, and climbed Matterhorn's southeast slopes that afternoon. Great views down Spiller Canyon.

Climbed the East Couloir with SMG, temps of 18 degrees at mid-day. Brrr! Great finish to the summit with some snow, rock and tiny bit of ice. Rewarding mountain and view.

Camped at Matterhorn Lake and climbed the southeast side to the top. Beautiful campsite, beautiful summit. A bit sloggy.

A long dayhike and you may have it to yourself. Good views into a part of Yosemite that few ever see.

Fun climb up, although I had to do my only self arrest ever in the snow gully (waited too long to put crampons on). One of our party bonked on the way out, and we ended up coming out in the middle of the night - not fun.

Great climb! Ended up climbing part of the N Arete and then the last twoish pitches of the double dihedral thing. All the climbing was really fun!

However, the ski run in winter/spring down this is quite fun!

Date Climbed: Jul 24, 2009


Didn't quite make it as we ran out of time...Climbed with packs from Matterhorn Canyon to Burro Pass, then ditched packs for the climb...got to within 200' of summit and my parntner wouldn't go further, and we still had to return to packs and hike towards Mule Pass. And the climb seemed more like Class 3 at top, which I didn't want to attempt alone (I'm old!). Oh well...seems the story of my life with climbing lately...unless the base of a peak is near starting point, the approach will take too much time and wears me out! Oh to be young again!

Great fun dayhike - after a Buckeye soak, and sleeping under a lone juniper, we sped up Horse canyon until the trail disappeared, struggled a bit keeping focused on the trail so ended up sidehilling scree before gaining the saddle. Excellent scramble (good footing) up the east ridge to the top, with hazy, thunder threatening views. Hail and rain on the way down to the saddle, but little lightning. 9 hours car to car, and oh what a day!

A long day hike with cbuelow. Did not enjoy the sandy slog just below the summit. However, a fun scramble at the top with some beautiful vistas!
